Internships and Grad school

I was deeply inspired when MediaStorm came to York College to discuss the company and their projects. It was almost like a light bulb turned on because that’s what my group and I aspire to be. I was delighted to find out that they also offer internships, even though it’s a one in a million shot I believe that going there would grant me the ultimate experience where i’m absorbing everything I see like a sponge. They are an organization that essentially works with profit and non profit organizations that help construct videos and documentaries about awareness and characters. Having my own production team that also do something similar was inspiring to see what a more established and developed group is. Basically MediaStorm is the grown up version of Pantheon Cinema (My Group). Jobs range from editing to even going in the field and shooting, but it’s mostly just editing and helping coordinate these projects.

Now this is just a fantasy scenario, but my IDEAL internship would be to work with Marvel. I’m a huge comic book fan and love all the work they have been doing with their stories and films and once I found out that the company is located in New York and intern all the time I was delighted beyond belief. And their internship opportunities range from everything that I have encountered at York, from web design to even media. I’m hoping and crossing my fingers that I could have the opportunity to be involved in the media department with marvel and become a part of being behind the stories that brought me up during my childhood.

AMC Networks Inc. (IFC FILMS) Operates several award winning brands of cable television. One of them being IFC films that produce culturally relevant films that have engaged audiences for years. IFC films offers interns a chance to review, analyze and be a part of the independent film world. I was made aware that a previous CT major interned at IFC and I became extremely jealous at the fact because that is the ideal place where any indie filmmaker see’s themselves being at a certain point.

I don’t have planned to attend graduate school right away after I complete my work at York. My goal is to work for about a year to a year and a half and then attend graduate school once I have a better vision of what I need to work on and learn. I know this is a very unrealistic plan, but NYU has a film program that many artist in the industry have attended and I just think to myself “Why can’t I?” It’s a long shot but I believe the networking and push would be what I need to get my foot in the door and start working seriously as a professional

INTERNSHIP

An Internship is an opportunity that helps provide real world experience to students looking to explore or gain the relevant knowledge and skills required to enter into a particular career field.

I have always love shooting videos and editing them is a passion acquired through painstaking methods that span over eight years. I know that i still need more hands-on experience to strengthen those knowledge acquired so far, in college. Hence the Internship opportunity.

Couple of places I did like to work are:

1. STEINER STUDIOS
